High Temperature Corrosion in Energy Systems
High-temperature (>500°C) corrosion is ubiquitous in energy conversion and industrial systems, e.g., engines/turbines, fuel cells and chemical processing, and can significantly limit system performance and durability. This presentation will review these challenges and interdisciplinary efforts at MSU to address them. Specifically, designing, constructing and operating meaningful laboratory scale facsimiles of industrial applications, and using these to investigate the evolution of materials in corrosive environments will be discussed. Additionally, an overview of the new Montana Engineering Education Research Center at MSU will be presented, along with opportunities to engage.
